高温工学試験研究炉(HTTR)の制御棒が原子炉運転中に到達する最高温度を測定するため、制御棒先端に融点の異なる合金ワイヤを設置し、原子炉出力100%の状態から原子炉スクラムを経験した後、ワイヤを制御棒から取出し、ワイヤの溶融状態を確認する体系を構築することとした。本研究で溶融ワイヤを取出すための取出し装置を作製した。取出し装置は、想定どおりに機能し、マニュピレータを用いた遠隔での溶融ワイヤを安全、かつ確実に実施することができ、かつ溶融ワイヤの外観観察も明瞭に実施できたことから、制御棒温度計測技術の開発に成功した。ワイヤの外観を観察した結果、融点が505$$^{circ}$$C以下の融解線が融解し、融点が651$$^{circ}$$C以上の融解線が融解していないことが確認された。したがって、制御棒先端の最高到達温度は、505$$^{circ}$$Cから651$$^{circ}$$Cの範囲にあること、すなわち制御棒は、反応炉スクラム時であっても、制御棒被覆材のAlloy 800Hの使用温度基準(900$$^{circ}$$C)の範囲内で使用できていることが分かった。

A melt wire was installed at the tip of the control rod in order to measure the temperature of High Temperature engineering Test Reactor (HTTR). After experience with reactor scram from the state of reactor power 100%, the melt wire was taken out from the control rod and appearance has been observed visually. In this study, an exclusive device for taking out the melt wire was prepared. The take-out device functions as expected, and the melt wire was safely and reliably taken out using a remote manipulator. And because the visual observation of the melt wire was clearly carried out, we were successful in developing the control rod temperature measurement technology. It was confirmed that the melt wires with a melting point of 505$$^{circ}$$C or less were melted, and the melt wires with a melting point of 651$$^{circ}$$C or more were not melted. Therefore, it was found that the highest arrival temperature of tip of the control rods where the melt wires are installed reaches within the range of 505 to 651$$^{circ}$$C. And it was found that the control rod temperature at the time of reactor scram does not exceed the using temperature criteria (900$$^{circ}$$C) of Alloy 800H of the control rod sleeve.
